The Two Witnesses - Length of Ministry
L ength of Ministry
1,260 days: Time, times and half a time; 42 months. Three and a half years, the duration of the Great Tribulation Period. This is the same period of time that the antichrist rules the earth. Every indifferent Christian is given into his hands. The bride is concealed in the wilderness. The only witness of Christ will be these two men.
Jerusalem: (Spiritual Sodom and Egypt, where our Lord was crucified).
Two Olive Trees and Two Candlesticks
Revelation 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
The two candlesticks witness to the one seven-branched candlestick. There is only one church. The witnesses stand either side of it.
The two olive branches pour oil through the golden pipes; they empty the oil out of themselves. Their purpose is to witness, support, confirm and establish and pour their ministry and lives into the seven lamps of the golden candlestick.
These are the two anointed ones: margin, Hebrew, sons of oil, or, sons of the Holy Ghost.
Ministry of Judgment
Enemies confronted and slain by fire that proceeds from their mouths.
